Hollywood hunk Kevin Costner is saving money this Christmas (04) by giving friends and family his own music compilations as gifts.

The DANCES WITH WOLVES star is recording a selection of tracks that have sentimental value to him and his wife CHRISTINE, because he hates meaningless, commercial presents.

A close friend explains, "Kevin is making a special recording of songs that mean something to him and his wife, Christine.

"He does the same thing for his kids and friends because he thinks it's more heartfelt than just buying something from a store."
